Executive Senior Partner - Direct Hire
Shane Farrar never settles and is not content until he finds a solution to a problem. The same holds true for his recruiting practice, where he strives to make ideal placements for his candidates.
Shane joined Lucas Group in 2015 in the Military Division where he assists other like-minded veterans with the transition to civilian life. A former United States Marine Corps Infantry Officer, he understands the hands-on leadership, strong work ethic and high-level interpersonal skills that military veterans possess. In his role, Shane is focused on educating executives and decision-makers nationwide on the benefits of hiring top performing military leaders to enhance their organizations. Tenacious and driven, he perseveres to make strategic matches that will benefit both parties long term.
Prior to Lucas Group, Shane spent more than eight years with the United States Marines on active duty. As a Captain of the Marines, Shane was responsible for the transformation and leadership of more than one thousand civilian candidates as well as leading and developing their Drill Instructors. While on deployment to Afghanistan, he and his team were embedded with the Afghan National Army and over the course of seven months, they conducted enough training and patrolling that the partnered unit could operate independently of U.S. Forces by the end of the deployment.
Shane is a graduate of the United States Naval Academy with a B.S. in Systems Engineering; he also holds an M.S. in Global Leadership from the University of San Diego’s School of Business Administration. When not working, he can typically be found outdoors—snowboarding in the winter, scuba diving where possible and riding his motorcycle.
